on for this president. joining me now is political strategist angela rye. thank you both for being with us. >> thank you, reverend al. >> jarret, let me go to you first. tax fairness is a big part of what the president wants to get done. take a look at this. there are many middle class households that are actually paying a higher tax rate than households that make over a million dollars a year because they don't get most of their money from investments. will the president's policies change this problem? >> they will and they already are, to some extent. but there's more to be done there, just like the president just said. in the deal that ended the fiscal cliff, the tax rate at least for folks at the very top of the income scale, above $450,000, on capital gains and dividends, capital gains is what you get when you sell an appreciated stock. its value goes up. those are called capital gains. 20% is already below the tax rate that folks at the top of the scale pay on their earnings. so the president is saying there's a lot more room there to close out some of those loopholes and deductions. you mentioned
is angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies. ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it's only the middle of february 2013 and we have a slurry of individuals, bobby jindal, marco rubio, rand paul, paul ryan, but as far as jindal goes, he doesn't seem -- he seems to be having a hard time convincing voters in his own state. he only gets something like 37% of people in louisiana who want to support him. what do you think his prospects are to begin with? >> first and foremost, i think it's a really bad idea to kind of poll or test policies on your state not paying attention to what really matters to the folks and the residents of louisiana. so i think he really has to get a better handle on what his state cares about right now. it's not school vouchers. it's not this new tax proposal he has. it's things that immediately matter like what's happening with the economy. i have no idea what bobby jindal is doing but he's a little off base here. >> that's a fair condemnation. jonathan,
were touchdowns and were ads were fumbles. >> mariana rajoy meets angela merkel. >>> plus, upcoming elections that sylvia berlusconi has called his last great electoral and political battle. >>> the power to split up uk banks if they fail to -- activity. george osborne is expected to give the bank of england the responsibility to make sure banks are involved in these activities. you have to love the extended analogy. watch the george osborne speech live here at 10:30 local for those of you here with us in the uk. in the meantime, there are more charges at the top over at barclay's. last night, the bank's financial chief and financial chief announced their leaving. tomorrow, barclay's ceo anthony jenkins will face questions in parliament over banking standards and next week he will present his long awaited plans for transforming the bank. >>> and a number of stories about rbs also in the weekend press. the sunday times reporting the bank will announce a 500 pound settlement with u.s. and uk regulators later this week. rbs will cover the bonus pools after a warning from the government
, february 15th. i'm angela miles. in today's first look: stocks stay stuck. stocks and comodities barely budged yesterday. a cross-current of postive news on jobs and m&a deals in the u.s. offset negative economic data out of europe, which held the market in check. shares of herblife soared 15% after hours on word carl ichan bought 14 million shares of the nutrition company. and tiffany is suing costco. tiffany claims the club chain is selling engagement rings bearing the tiffany name. traders will enjoy a long holiday weekend. with presidents' day coming up on monday, the markets will be closed. mark sebastian of option pit mentoring joins us on this friday for a closer look at the market. good morning. > > morning. > what do you think about g20, and what will it mean for trading today? > > i think people are going to be paying attention to the japanese yen. there is a lot of discussion about currency manipulation across europe, the u.s. and asia about the monetary measures japan is making, and i think that is going to be the big issue of g20 and could really drive the yen on friday. >
latino and angela rye is director of impact and a political strategist. welcome to both of you. maria, if i can start with you, what do you think the president is hoping to achieve by hosting such a range of organizations and companies to discuss this issue? >> martin, what the president recognizes is comprehensive immigration reform will take all efforts, all hands on deck. it's going to be grassroots, labor, business, and the only way he can do that is make sure everybody is on board and very clear on what the request is at hand. but more importantly, the fact that he was able to get in one day not only labor but he was also able to get business around the same table during these discussions demonstrates business recognizes they need to move fast on immigration because his window of time is short to pass this legislation. >> angela, today speaker john boehner and leader eric cantor were both asked if they plan to vote for senator marco rubio's broad plan supported by senate democrats. see if you can find a straight answer from either man. listen to this. >> i want to applaud senator
by janay's mother angela blakely. miss blakely, first i want to say how sorry i am for your loss. >> thank you. >> and i know that you're just going through the viewing. the funeral is a couple days off. but you wanted to come and lend your voice even in your pain to putting attention on this issue of gun violence that has robbed your daughter. tell us the type of person janay was. >> janay was -- pardon me. >> take your time. we understand. >> janay was a beautiful person. she was fun loving. she was like the life of the party to be around. she always loved to dance. always loved to make people smile. even in my times of me being a little mad or frustrated with janay, she would always do something to make me laugh or smile all the time. because that was my buddy. that was may baby. she couldn't stand for me to be mad with her or anything. my daughter was a wonderful person. she just so happened to, you know, been at the wrong place at the wrong time or befriend the wrong person. >> now, she was not a troubled child. this was not someone that was hanged in the streets there. one of the thi
, contrived crises. >> angela, when you're doing the state of the union and you know you worked the hill, you're not only talking to the people there, you're talking to millions of americans. don't americans want to hear about jobs? >> i think you're absolutely right, rev. they want to hear the president lay out a blueprint. the state of the union is an opportunity for president obama to talk about not only his legacy goals, but what direction america needs to take. when we look at the last congress and the fact that it was the least productive congress in american history, a lot of people say look, we've got jobs, we've got immigration reform, we've got gun control and we need you all to get on the same page with the rest of the country. >> e.j., at the democratic retreat, former president bill clinton, he said the politics americans want are in line with this president's agenda. watch this. >> i think the last election was an election where america chose an inclusive. now that you've won this race in large measure on what the american people did not want, we had to create a future that they
meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. they realize there's nothing they can do to control him. and they are becoming the face of the party. >> but angela, some members of his own party may begin to know it, but marco rubio is praising him as a superstar. look at ted cruz's resume. he believes sharia law is replacing american law. he believes medicaid is unconstitutional. he proposed state nullification of the affordable care act. he even thinks there's a
and an opinion writer for the "washington post" and angela reid, principle of impact strategies and msnbc contributor susan dellpurseo. >> you come in on president a days. let's dive in and get to work talking about this leaked proposal that came out. angela, i want to start with you. we have the timeline here and if we look at it, the president was scheduled to go to las vegas on january 29th and give his first policy speech of the second administration but we see that on the 28th the bipartisan group of senators, they came out with their plan trying to trump the president to seem ahead of him. is this a way in the chess match with the leaked reform bill getting out there a way for the president to get the ball back. >> i think if we stay a step back and think about what was in the leaked draft proposal, it is not that being showing. anyone listening to the state of the union address or anything else this administration has said about immigration, it is not a rouge surprise. we should be real about where we are and when you look at the senators bart of the bipartisan coalition, you think
's no doubt, angela, that the numbers of gun owners who feel the way that wayne lapierre feels. >> the president has their polls. wayne lapierre does not. i remember in elementary school i had to take a current event class and i'm wondering if he's not paying attention to the news. we have newtown with 20 kids gone. and you have this new killer on the rampage in los angeles. at some point the gun laws can no longer control us. we have to control them. >> well, i wonder, too, david if they are tone deaf. universal background checks, which do seem, if anything, have the broadest support. take a listen. >> at first glance, there's nothing universal about it at all. but think about it, criminals won't be part of that universe. think about it. they will steal their guns. >> the polls are not on the nra side. 52% of americans support stricter gun control laws. overwhelming support for the universal background checks. 92%. 56% support a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. is the nra tone deaf? >> well, i think clearly there's a reaction to newtown that is not expected,
